Description

The space

Accommodation is in a refurbished satellite tracking station which was used to broadcast the 1984 Olympic Games. Massive windows provide vineyard and mountain views.
The studio cottage caters for 2 guests. Also on the property a 2 bedroom apartment can accommodate up to 4 adults and a 3 bedroom apartment can take up to 6 adults. Regretfully we do not cater for children under the age of 12 years. Note, sometimes the Alpacas may be in a nearby paddock rather than at the window (we do need to let the grass regrow)

Guest access

Guests are free to explore the property, lots of wildlife, alpacas and cows in the paddocks, walks with fantastic views over vineyard and mountains beyond.

Interaction with guests

Guests can choose to either chill out in the privacy of their apartment or chat to the owners who live well away but on the 35 acre property. There is always some thing happening with seasonal work in the vineyard. Estate wine is available and we offer personalised WINERY TOURS for up to 4 guests touring the valley's cellar doors, boutique breweries and cider houses in a classic luxury vehicle. (licensed for charter)

The neighbourhood

The Yarra Valley, just over an hour's travel by car from Melbourne is synonymous with food and wine! ... and we are in the middle of it! Great coffee, restaurants and wineries are only minutes away, yet Valley Farm offers quiet seclusion, wildlife and walks for those that want to get away from it all. World famous Healesville Sanctuary is close by and we are surrounded by the Yarra Ranges National Park.

Getting around

We are located 3 km from the Healesville township. Public buses travel daily from Melbourne. Rail service runs from Melbourne to Lilydale (about 28 kms away). Taxis available.
We do offer personalised day tours (1 to 4 guests) sight-seeing and wineries around the Valley at a flat fee of $440 per day.

Other things to note

Enquire about our day tours.. You'll get the BEST private tour in the Valley and you're not crammed in the back of a van!

Do you want fun and a candid insight to wine production, .. Go "hands on" maybe prune a vine or pick a grape and learn more than the usual cellar door banter? Tasting tutorial and 5 star rated wine included.

Travel in a classic marque of the '70s
yep, no plastic and vinyl ... smell the leather, feel the woodgrain and chrome

then;
join us, locals with 20 years as growers and winemakers in wine industry.

We visit the best of the iconic labels and lesser known wineries, boutique breweries and cider houses.

Day tour only $440 flat rate (1 to 4 adults, pay on the day)
Lunch.., we have some great recommendations, because each tour varies there is no predetermined venue consequently meals not included in tour price.

Perfect for a girls weekend away! Greg and Louise were lovely hosts. The cottage was well equipped, nicely decorated and very comftable. Our favourite parts were the beautiful scenery and gorgeous alpacas, right outside our window!! We also enjoyed a delicious bottle of Greg's wine. This stay is highly recommended!

Greg & Louise were amazing hosts! The place was exactly as described and pictures showed, complete with Alpacas! We also saw kangaroo in the vineyard twice while we were there! The area is quiet and relaxing and not too far from Healesville so it's easy to go in town for dinner or groceries. Also Greg took us on a wine tour of Yarra Valley which included other local stops as well! We had a great time and can't wait to go back!

We had such a great time here. The location is perfect - a cost studio on a beautiful farm/vineyard nice and close to restraunts and shops. Greg was a fantastic host with great knowledge of the area. He went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable (thanks again Greg). While you're staying here you must try their wine (Trellis) - their Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are absolutely delicious! Overall we had a perfect time here. Couldn't have asked for more.

We had such a wonderful stay to celebrate our anniversary! Greg was incredibly friendly and helpful, with many fantastic recommendations for our trip (which were definitely spot on!). Gorgeous setting and space, very easy to feel at home. We felt really at home, and hope to one day return for another getaway.

Highly recommend this studio on the vineyard! Perfect location in Healesville, close to everything the Yarra Valley has to offer. Greg was very accommodating and gave us lots of great tips and insights about the area. The studio has everything you need. If you want to stretch the legs, you can walk across the vineyard and along an aqueduct nearby, it's beautiful and relaxing. We didn't get the alpaca's this time round so we'll just have to come back! Thanks Greg and Louise!

We had a wonderful stay on this gorgeous property. We had plenty of space to ourselves but Greg made sure that we had everything we needed (and was kind enough to come up to the studio to let us back in when we locked ourselves out at 11pm!!) Their vineyard also produces a rather excellent chardonnay and hosts some very cute alpacas. Thanks for having us!
